SHERLOCK HOLMES VERSUS DRACULA
A play for radio by Glyn Dearman from the writings of John H. Watson, MD, as edited by Loren D. Estleman
The Baker Street sleuth takes on the sanguinary Count.
Loren D Estleman's thriller stars John Moffatt and Timothy West.
'I feel it my duty to set the record straight regarding a number of erroneous statements made recently concerning the events I am about to describe. I refer in particular to a spurious monograph by one Bram Stoker, entitled Dracula, which completely ignores the part which Sherlock Holmes played in bringing that affair to its successful conclusion.'
